Special reception thanks Casa contributors

RANCHO SANTA FE — Casa de Amparo, a center for child abuse treatment and prevention in San Diego County, honored its 2009 Champions for Children annual fund contributors at a special invitation-only reception recently hosted by Bertrand Hug of Milles Fleurs with wine provided by B Cellars’ Judy and Duffy Keys. Hug, who also owns Mr. A’s restaurant in downtown San Diego, is a longtime Casa supporter.
Champions for Children are individuals, families, corporations and foundations dedicated to the vision of making San Diego a community where child abuse is not tolerated and where child abuse awareness and prevention are priorities. The group includes all who make a gift of $1,000 or more. Such gifts make possible Casa de Amparo programs such as therapeutic preschool, developmental support and parent enrichment for at risk children and families; housing and support to help former foster youth make a successful transition to independent living; and counseling and support for military families under stress.
Among those enjoying the al fresco wine and appetizers were Lou and Judy Ferrero, Ed and Gigi Cramer, Jim and Kim Grant, Lizbeth Ecke, Maurine Freeman, Richard and Jeri Rovsek, Duffy and Judy Keys, Robert and Diane Herrmann, Dan and DeAnn Maurer and Dr. Bob and Lisa Curry.
